About us

The Infringement Management Enforcement Services (IMES) business unit within the Department of Justice and Regulation (the Department) provides end-to-end management of infringement matters to the Victorian Government and a range of external enforcement agencies. The management and enforcement of infringements is critical to the effective and efficient operation of the criminal justice system in Victoria. The criticality of this function has been elevated following the introduction of Victoria’s Fines Reform Act 2014 (the Fines Reform Act), which will transition Victoria to a wholly administrative fines recovery model.

The IMES Reform Program (Program) aims to provide business stability and continuity for existing IMES business services. Simultaneously, the Program will prepare the business for the future, including the organisational and technology change required to deliver the Fines Reform Act and any other future services. Under the direction of the Program Director, the Manager’s first responsibility is to ensure the successful delivery of the Work and Development Permit (WDP) Scheme.

This stream of work involves the operational implementation of a key social justice initiative of the Program. The WDP Scheme will provide people who are disadvantaged, vulnerable or experiencing financial hardship with an alternative way of clearing their fines by engaging in approved activities or treatment supported by a registered sponsor. The WDP Scheme will ‘go live’ on 1 July 2017, with a staged approach to a full IT system implementation, in parallel with the VIEW System.

About the role

The role of the Manager will shift from overseeing operational implementation to managing business operations of the WDP team as part of business as usual within IMES.

In this role, you will:

  • effectively manage and leading the WDP Scheme team
  • coordinate updates, baseline and maintain project management documents (i.e. schedule, risk and issues register)
  • continue engagement with key WDP sponsors and stakeholder groups within the community that will support the WDP Scheme.

About you

As our ideal candidate, you will have:

  • demonstrated experience in being able to meet the key accountabilities of the role, including significant hands-on experience delivering high value programs and projects
  • knowledge, understanding and hands-on use of project management methodologies
  • demonstrated experience in leading and managing a multi-skilled operational team.
